Voice Lessons
Uniting Body, Mind and Voice

Styles taught: Classical/Opera, Musical Theatre, Commercial Contemporary Music.

 

I teach adults of all ages and levels.

Whether you are coming for professional development, or to enjoy the benefits of singing as a lifelong recreational activity I can help you attain one or more of the following goals:

- Prepare CEGEP, University or choral  auditions

-Prepare for recording sessions, live shows and touring

- Develop a sound and reliable approach to singing

- Release muscular tension that is interfering with your singing

- Find your full true expressive voice

- Learn the differences between opera/classical and contemporary singing

Since 1993, I have been teaching singers of all ages and levels. My approach to teaching singing is ever evolving as I continue to develop as a performer, teacher, and student of the voice. In individual and group lessons, I combine my more recent experience as an improviser, with my roots as a singer of popular, country, folk, and musical theatre, and 30 years of formal classical singing and training to meet the individual needs and artistic goals of each person I work with.

Individual voice lessons run 60 minutes.

 

Through structured vocal exercises I aim to help you:

  • Coordinate postural alignment and breathing for singing

  • Free unnecessary tension

  • Expand overall vocal range

  • Develop vocal ease and flexibility

  • Acquire clear, artistic and lyric diction

  • Develop a more focused and resonant timbre

  • Use your practice time efficiently

  • Develop reliable strategies for formal and/or informal performance

  • Learn how to warm up and cool down your voice

  • Develop overall musicality

  • Care for your voice in everyday life

When preparing repertoire I will offer you strategies to:

  • Apply vocal techniques learned to the pieces you are singing

  • Set goals and manage practice time efficiently

  • Memorize your music

  • Prepare and research your music

  • Sing lyrically in English, French, German, Italian and Latin
